Phuntsho Tshering, Bhutan's only glaciologist, measures the melting glaciers in the Himalayas, navigating sacred mountains and the snow lion's consequences to protect his homeland from climate change. His daughter, Yangchen, finds solace in videos he makes while he's gone. A poignant reminder of the importance of protecting the planet for future generations and the beauty of the father-daughter bond.
